Event description

Description

Join us for a celebration of the arts and culture at Queen Mary University of London.

Queen Mary is a major contributor to London’s cultural diversity. Established as a Victorian philanthropic institution dedicated to improving the lives of the people of the East End, QMUL is a global arts institution, firmly anchored in our East London community. QMUL is home to four Arts Council national portfolio organisations and countless practicing artists. Our cultural activities range from student societies to multi-million pound music technology spin-outs. And while QMUL has been at the forefront of developing links between the creative industries and higher education, we have always valued culture and the arts as a means to communicate our research, deliver innovative teaching, foster social justice and care for each other.


This event celebrates the transformative cultural experiences that students, staff and members of the public enjoy at QMUL. Focussing on the themes of our new five-year arts and culture strategy - global research, community engagement, and creative leadership - it brings together artists from the QMUL community with international leaders from the cultural sector.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Colin Bailey, Principal and President of Queen Mary University of London;

  • Tristram Hunt, Director of the V&A Museum;

  • Stella Hall, Co-founder of the Green Room and leading festival director.

Performances include: Lois Weaver, Performance artist and Professor of Contemporary Performance at QMUL; ‘My Saree’s Story by British/Bangladeshi drama practitioner Rokshana Khan, the Chinese Music Studio, Bangladeshi singer and song writer Saida Tani, pianist Kate Ryder and others.

We look forward to welcoming you for an evening of fun and provocation, which showcases the distinctive arts and culture that make QMUL a world-leading institution.
